Still has all the info as the old app albeit laid out differently, but where the old app loaded instantly the new version takes around 10-15seconds to load. It mighnt seem like much but its a huge step backwards to what it was. The popup for rain radar is annoying amd manages to cover future temps when you load up forcing you to scroll instead of seeing everything on one page. It needs to be a seperate window like it used to be. I think ill be looking for another app now.

Thank you for the feedback regarding your experience. The previous release was built in 2016 and we've had to implement this update to meet evolving technology requirements. This release has been developed to improve overall user experience and was guided by community engagement and customer feedback.

Hmmmm...a decent app .... but they seem now to be constantly updating with bugginess at expense of new features. The radar for example regularly plays up. Also, sweet jeebus, make the warnings click to expand with closed DEFAULT or at least dismisssble once viewed!!! And the widget is barely readable - tiny font, poor use of space plus "ambient" shading that really reduces contrast.

After many years of using the app it's slowly got worse and after today's terms and conditions and being told the any worms, viruses etc is my own problem if they occur that's me done !! I could deal with incorrect weather almost every day. Weather zone is much more realistic on reports and a real time radar! Even for bushfire I can actually see where the smoke is. Anyway rant over good bye BOM. Hope this helps other people in looking for a reliable weather app.
